Free 5-Day Professional Development Intensive for NYC Artists

 Do you live in NYC?  Then get your name on the list.  You might get picked by the lottery to be part of this great professional development intensive. 

I, for one, think lotteries are the best way to select artists for all sorts of programs.  Once you rise to the general level of requirements, it becomes personal taste and not artistry that makes the last cut.  In the "personal taste" realm also lives the -isms - you know - sexism, racism, cultural imperialism.  Anyway details below the fold or just go to the website:  NYC Artists Professional Development Program

The Artists Summer Institute (ASI), a free five-day professional development intensive, returns August 7–11! ASI is open to 55 New York City artists working in the fields of visual, media, performing and literary arts. The participating artists will be chosen through a lottery process; only online registrations from NYC residents received before the July 2 deadline will be considered.

This is a unique opportunity for New York City artists to step outside their daily routine and focus on developing professional skills and artistic goals in a community setting. Designed to help artists build a path to greater sustainability and self-sufficiency, ASI provides a comprehensive range of training, tools and resources for working artists.

The program is intended for artists who seek arts-focused professional training in the areas of business and strategic planning, verbal communications, financial management, marketing, promotion and effective Internet strategies.
